Custom Heaters & Research is proud to offer an Induction Heating System which is super-efficient at drum heating. Utilizing induction, this industrial drum heater system does not make contact with the drum and provides fast uniform heating. Simply place the heater over the 55-gallon or smaller steel container or lower the container into the heater. This induction drum heater uses a single coil within the cylinder’s wall, made from a glass-reinforced resin. The coil generates heat uniformly around the container wall. Since there are no hot elements, the industrial drum heater remains cooler than the drum being heated. Supply Power single-phase 240V, 50/60Hz AC power. Heating times depend on the contents. The rate of temperature rise of a typical viscous organic material will be about 30°F per hour. This induction heating system is suitable for use in Class 1, Division 1 and Division 2 and is IECEx, ATEX and ETL (UL/CSA standards) certified. CHR Inc. also offers a base drum heater kit.
